Fabio Oliveri († 2014, age 77) was our friend, he lived in Palermo (Italy). He was a lecturer of philosophy and history at Galilei High School in Palermo (liceoggalileipalermo.edu.it) and a profound connoisseur of the Semitic peoples of Sicily and of ancient languages. He owned a small house in the wilderness near Prizzi, which also plays a central role in two of his publications («Il Casale giudaico Pietra-Ciaramitaro nel comune di Prizzi», «Contrade e insediamenti nel Comune di Prizzi»). His lively tours in museums or on hikes were profound, yet with humor and remain unforgettable. He was a fine person.
